New Animal Crossing Update Out Now, Fixes A Few Bugs

Nintendo has rolled out a new update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This patch is another fairly minor one, primarily addressing a small handful of issues that have cropped up in the game following its big 1.5 update late last month.

According to the patch notes on Nintendo’s support website, New Horizons’ 1.5.1 update resolves a couple of bugs, including one where Nook Miles keywords would not appear in the passport list, and another that caused villagers to talk about pumpkins when they were given a bamboo shoot. You can read the full patch notes below.

The aforementioned 1.5 update released on September 29 and introduced an assortment of fall-themed content to the game, including the Halloween event, pumpkins, and spooky DIY recipes. Another big New Horizons update is coming in late November, and it appears that one will add the game’s Thanksgiving and Christmas events.

That’s not all that’s coming next month; Nintendo also announced that the Animal Crossing Amiibo cards are returning to stores this November. Each pack will cost $6 USD and includes six cards, which you can scan to invite villagers to live on your island or take photos of them in the game’s Photopia mode. The long sold-out Animal Crossing-edition Switch console is also starting to return to select stores.

In the meantime, a variety of new October bugs, fish, and sea creatures are appearing in the game right now. The Fishing Tourney is happening this weekend for both Northern and Southern Hemisphere players. The event takes place on Saturday, October 10, giving you another chance to earn exclusive fish-themed furniture and other items.
